How did Larry Nassar, an Olympic gymnastics doctor, get away with abusing hundreds of women and girls for two decades? Believed is an inside look at how a team of women won a conviction in one of the largest serial sexual abuse cases in U.S. history. It's a story of survivors finding their power in a cultural moment when people are coming to understand how important that is. It's also an unnerving exploration of how even well-meaning adults can fail to believe.

Required listening

This is such a powerful podcast, very well done. Anyone who has a daughter, sister or mother should be listening to this. Which is everyone. This podcast should be part of high school sex ed classes. I hope this wins the webby it has been nominated for! Very well deserved!

Must listen

What a depressing yet powerful story to hear. A story of a man/men in position of power and using medicine/science/expertise/fame to abuse young girls and a story of broken young girls become powerful women and fighting back! Great job NPR and Michigan public radio!
